MORE Marital Tension?

Okay, you all know that I was kidding about the pants being an issue of marital tension, right?

Now let me fill in the blank spaces.

My husband folds pants differently than I do. Since he outed himself in regards to pants-folding style, I can explain.

I fold all casual pants and put them in drawers. I am all about not ironing - which is possible, if clothes are folded correctly. And I don't want to have to iron creases out of jeans, sweat pants, and khakis (although I don't think creased khakis look bad.) All dress pants that should have a crease, hang from the waistband in my closet such that the legs are creased.

My husband, on the other hand, doesn't necessarily WANT creases in all of his pants, but he IRONS them before he wears them.

I remember asking him about this once when I pulled a pair of jeans out of my drawer to find that they were creased down the legs. Instead of being thankful that he'd folded them, I just got mad because they were creased.

That was the extent of the argument.

Really, this isn't as much about him LIKING creases in his pants, as much as it is about me NOT LIKING them.

So, why am I posting about this?
a. our pants-folding differences have made me wonder how other people fold their pants.
b. this is just another step in the grand scheme for manipulating my husband into changing his disgusting pants-folding habits.
c. I wanted to see if this inconsequential issue could be made more exciting through my hyperbolic style of writing.
d. I just HAD to post about laundry, as fascinating as it is.

Thanks for your participation.
